I retired from The Boeing Company in 2009 where I was a Technical Fellow in the Research & Technology division. My research was in computer support for cooperative work, focusing on industrial applications of collaboration technology, including support for teamwork, workflow management, and knowledge management. My educational background includes degrees in engineering, mathematics, and psychology, and my career has combined my interests in all three areas. After completing a Ph.D. in psychology at the University of Washington I was a professor of psychology at the University of Denver and worked at Bell Laboratories and MCC before joining Boeing Research & Technology.
